I'm still angry about how poorly HP handled webOS, they barely made an effort with it, then quickly killed it, reducing our mobile OS options from 5 to 4....I hold grudges HP, long ones, I'm still angry at Apple for cancelling the Apple II line in 1993.
The funny thing is that Android and Blackberry both adopted the 'cards' before iOS did. So not only did Apple copy webOS, which I guess is fine because it is now open source, but they copied everyone else copying webOS.
Yes, it definitely does suck. However I can understand why they didnt aggressively pursue the development of this operating system. Not enough people wanting to switch and develop for it. Same thing is happening with Blackberry. I like both but right now iPhone, Android, and WP 8 are dominating with stable and numerous apps.
